“Pyschology” as the Subjective Story Domain

In Dramatica Story Theory, Psychology as the Subjective Story Domain has the Main and Obstacle Characters diverging over a manner of thinking. Phrases like, “You always get this way when we argue,” and “No, I don’t – it’s you that keeps changing subjects,” are referring not to a particular attitude, but a manner of thinking that is not appreciated between the Main and Obstacle Characters. When the way one goes about working something out becomes the issue between the Main and Obstacle Characters, the Subjective Story Throughline Domain will be Psychology.
